I see you've been over this before. I can see no purpose in discussing it further.

That is quite correct but it does not hurt to keep bringing these issues to the top where eventually the curators of the Internet Archive will become more interactive, establish some better guidelines, instill individuals that are dedicated to the rules and regulations with more knowledge and access to many more resources [for the ultimate copyright status of a specific film], and offer a more presentable repository. Until then, there will always be arguments and doubts about the status of a specific film.

It is a pity in many ways for there are a lot of individuals that do not have access to the elements of film history either by location or financial and the Internet Archive would be a wonderful site for the dispersion of such knowledge.

Here's a thought for the curators: For films that are obviously under copyright and those that are borderline, simply disable the download options.

HG80,
Your suggestion about new uploads being viewable but not downloadable is a good one.
And while we're wish listing, perhaps a separate Copyright_Court Forum could be created so the Feature_Film forum could be used to discuss films. There are so many opinions that could then be reasonably voiced.

"Copyright Court Forum" could be a viable option whereby hard evidence is presented and maintain the "Feature Film Forum" for film discussions. Good idea.
